Biscuits or cookies are one of my favourite snacks. I always like to have a jar of homemade biccies to hand. Recently, I have been making the same biscuits which I love but occasionally I feel it’s time to experiment. I really enjoy exploring my kitchen cupboards and looking for ingredients I have never tried together before.
On this occasion, the ghee and honey just jumped at me when I opened the pantry. Therefore I decided to try these ingredients in a biscuit. Now I can’t get enough of this flavour combination. I have made these biscuits twice and each time I make them they seem to disappear within days. My husband Howard and son Ted have also been eating these biscuits/cookies. It’s definitely one I will be making again.

As you can imagine the Honey and Ghee Biscuits/Cookies have been very popular in this house. These biscuits make a great snack but they also make a good after dinner or lunch treat too. They also make a brilliant present for a relative or friend as well. That’s if you don’t eat them all before you give them away. However you decide to eat these biccies, as always, please enjoy! xxx
